NY Based Kannalife Awarded Exclusive Cannabinoid (Marijuana) License By Feds

Cannabinoid Patent Exclusivity Only Applies To One Condition

By Steve Elliott ~alapoet~ in Medical, News
Monday, December 19, 2011 at 8:00 pm

The exclusive rights to apply the cannabinoids found in marijuana as therapeutic agents awarded by the U.S. federal government to the firm KannaLife only apply to one specific medical condition, KannaLife's CEO told Toke of the Town Monday night.

Dean Petkanas, CEO, KannaLife:
"Our exclusivity is narrowly focused"
(you'd be grinning too!-gfv)

Dean Petkanas, chief executive officer at KannaLife Sciences, told us that the exclusivity applies only for the development and sale of cannabinoid based therapeutics as antioxidants and neuroprotectants for use in the treatment of hepatic encephalopathy.

"It is narrowly defined exclusivity, in that field," Petkanas told us. "Our exclusivity is narrowly focused.">>More


Kannalife: We are a socially responsible, phyto-medical company specializing in the research & development of pharmacological products derived from plants.

Question: If the patent (#6630507) is owned by US DHHS, isn't it really the peoples patent, and why should a for profit company be granted the license to profit from a patent ostensibly owned by the people?

Could it be that the "United States Of America" and the people of the United States of America are now separate and unequal things?

Great post. That is what is going on with the Cannabis Patent

what? That's right, the US Gov has patented the use of the main ingredient in Cannabis, Cannabinoids.

While they bust legal dispensaries.

But only a few people can grasp the deception.
This Oakland attorney gets it:

Oakland cites surprise medical pot backer

Cedric Chao, a lawyer for the city, cited a 2003 patent application

----(GFV: Note that the paper said "application" and not that it was granted)

by the U.S. government that said cannabis compounds are "useful in the treatment and prophylaxis (prevention) of a wide variety of oxidation-associated diseases," including certain types of strokes and immune-system disorders.

Chao quoted another patent application, by two government scientists in 2009, that referred to the "healing properties of Cannabis sativa," or marijuana, that have been "known throughout documented history."

"How can the government credibly deny the benefits of medical cannabis when the government itself is funding cutting-edge research proving the medical benefits of cannabis and seeking patents based on such research?" Chao wrote.


Feds close to granting medical marijuana patent to NY-based research company?

Update: KannaLife did receive exclusive rights to the US patent on marijuana, but CEO Dean Petkanas told our sister blog Toke of the Town last night that it only applies to a very specific medical condition and that they have no plans to expand their research. "We don't want to be involved in the production, growth or dispensing of marijuana at the retail level," Petkanas said.

Original post, 4:28 p.m., Dec. 19: The U.S Department of Health and Human Services is about to give exclusive rights to the government-owned patent on marijuana to a single pharmaceutical company based in New York -- a state that doesn't even recognize medical marijuana as a valid therapy.Think that's unfair, fellow Colorado medical marijuana patient? Well, you've still got a few hours left to write in and tell the government your thoughts....more

"Did we just kill a kid?" he asked the man sitting next to him.

It would take a true sociopath to be that nonchalant about killing someone.

Did you read this excellent piece in Spiegel.de?

The Woes of an American Drone Operator

Bryant saw a flash on the screen: the explosion. Parts of the building collapsed. The child had disappeared. Bryant had a sick feeling in his stomach.

"Did we just kill a kid?" he asked the man sitting next to him.

"Yeah, I guess that was a kid," the pilot replied.

"Was that a kid?" they wrote into a chat window on the monitor.

Then, someone they didn't know answered, someone sitting in a military command center somewhere in the world who had observed their attack. "No. That was a dog," the person wrote.

They reviewed the scene on video. A dog on two legs?

"Anything to stop even one death is worth it."




How about a camera in your living room? Would that be ok?

Funny, I just glanced at your nick. It's uncanny sometimes how closely one's nick corresponds with their posts.

Absolutely uncanny. Check it out!

Why did he ignore the points he has made earlier

at least in that piece?

1. He was wrong in the video below
2. He got a call from his lawyer
3. He all of a sudden found out how much fun it is to drop Prozac
4. ?

How about the US GOV National Institutes of Health

You've seen this. You choose to ignore it and slime those looking for answers.

NIH.GOV: Antidepressants and Violence-Problems at the Interface of Medicine & Law

Both clinical trial and pharmacovigilance data point to possible links between these drugs and violent behaviours. The legal cases outlined returned a variety of verdicts that may in part have stemmed from different judicial processes. Many jurisdictions appear not to have considered the possibility that a prescription drug may induce violence.

...In these trials, hostile events are found to excess in both adults and children on paroxetine compared with placebo, and are found across indications, and both on therapy and during withdrawal. The rates were highest in children with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), where the odds ratio of a hostile event was 17 times greater (95% confidence interval

Emotional blunting

Another mechanism that may contribute to hostile events is treatment-induced emotional blunting. Several reports published since 1990 have linked SSRI intake with the production of emotional blunting, detachment, or an amotivational syndrome, described in one report as the equivalent to a

“chemical lobotomy”

The new issues highlighted by these cases need urgent examination jointly by jurists and psychiatrists in all countries where antidepressants are widely used. The problem is international, and it would make sense to organise an international effort now.


Ignore your governments request for further examination if you will.

Others won't. In fact, the constant and frankly unbelievable attacks against those who are trying to figure out what is making these kids pick up a gun and kill their classmates have motivated me (at least) to spend every free minute of my time in the next few months getting out the truth about these drugs as outlined by the US FEDERAL GOVERNMENT National Institutes of Health.

So, in a way, thanks to you and the rest. You will NEVER SILENCE people like me. And now you've helped to turn over a hornets nest. Mark my words, if you wanted this under the rug, you've had the opposite effect. Happy Holidays.

From the above:

...In 1998, a new family doctor, unaware of this adverse reaction to fluoxetine, prescribed paroxetine 20 mg to DS, for what was diagnosed as an anxiety disorder. Two days later having had, it is believed, two doses of medication, DS using a gun put three bullets each through the heads of his wife, his daughter who was visiting, and his nine-month-old granddaughter before killing himself.

If he didn't have a gun you think he would have baked a cake or done some laundry?
